| Attorney Jay McMahon, candidate for Massachusetts Attorney General, issued a statement today:
Jay McMahon is proud to announce that he will be participating in a MassGOP Republican Rally on June 21, 2022. A rally that will feature the most diverse slate of candidates in the history of Massachusetts. “I’m excited to be part of this statewide slate of diverse candidates that truly represent the best of Massachusetts. The radical left media and extreme progressive Democrat party have made false claims about MassGOP Chairman, Jim Lyons. They claim that Lyons is a racist; and yet Chairman Lyons has put forth the most diverse slate of candidates in the history of the Commonwealth. This slate is much more diverse than ever put out by the Massachusetts Democrat Party. Unlike the Democrats, who use race and sexual orientation as a means to divide our country, Lyons has succeeded at doing just the opposite and uniting us.” said McMahon.
